À propos de moi

Merhaba! :)

(After a brake, I am back to teaching Turkish on Verbling with more experience in teaching Turkish!)

It has always been a passion for me to learn about different languages and cultures. From my personal experience, I can say that understanding a specific culture requires the ability of speaking the language.

For instance, imagine yourself speaking Turkish while you are in Turkey, in restaurants, taxis, markets, shops... Your travelling experience becomes a completely different experience by interacting people in their native language. It helps you to socialise, bargain(!), to learn more about people and creates different perspectives in your mind. Even a "Merhaba" is highly appreciated in Turkey but if you choose having Turkish lessons with me, I can assure you to have longer conversations with Turkish people.

I can help you to learn and improve your Turkish!
I studied at Foreign Language Teaching Department and I hold several language teaching certificates which contributed a lot in my teaching methodology. I am a helpful and supportive language teacher. I encourage and support my students to reach their fullest potential to enjoy and make the best of their learning experience.

I have teaching experience at academic level at the University of Montana as a Fulbright Teaching Assistant in the USA. I also taught Turkish in South Korea and in China.

Currently, I work as an academic at Yıldız Technical University in Istanbul and give online Turkish lessons. Besides giving online lessons, I have been teaching Turkish to business professionals, academics, diplomats and all manner of expatriates and their families in Istanbul.

I also gave lessons to prepare students for Turkish as a foreign language examinations such as the FCO ( Foreign Commonwealth Office) Examinations.

I have participated and presented in many national and international conferences about teaching Turkish as a foreign language and about Turkey.

I also hold a TEFL ( Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate.


1- Organising a course around communicative, integrative tasks with good planning is very important. For that reason, authenticity, real world communication and meaningful tasks have a very significant role in my classes.

2- The lessons go from simple to more complex. Instead of focusing on intensive grammar, we focus on creating a student based environment where the natural spoken language is used. Vocabulary and grammar points are highlighted within listening and reading activities during the class.

3- Materials are sent before the lesson to supply the learning process and after the lesson I send another material which summarises what is studied during the lesson. All the materials are prepared by me according to your interests, proficiency level and learning goals.

I teach Turkish at all levels. In our first lesson we can find out your level and we can talk about your needs and goals. We can set a plan and start studying together to reach your language target!

That’s all for now. If you have any questions regarding the Turkish language and the lessons, feel free to contact me!

Looking forward to hearing from you! Görüşürüz! :)
